Handiwork

Douglas H. Mc Clintock 1934 (Sarnia, Ontario)



I think I shall never see
Spring's green grass and pine trees as white as snow.
It is a winter wonderland for it to be
It's April, could it be winter's last storm to show ?

But there is a mystery in all this layer of snow,
No two snowflakes are alike !
Catch a few in your hand, it is quite the sight
To witness God's handiwork, perfect in all it's might !
